The secret is out. The Macedon Ranges is home to some of country Victoria's best restaurants. Kuzu Izakaya (Woodend), Tansy's (Kyneton) and Midnight Starling (Kyneton) have just been awarded one hat in the Age Good Food awards again. If you haven't been to any of them, do yourself a favour and make a booking.
